THESE images lay bare Dubai’s first ever female super-car club whose members are as beautiful as the sleek cars they fearlessly drive.
About 80 women from 17 nations have rallied under banner of the Arabian Gazelles.
Most are business owners, others are housewives – but all have one thing in common.
They have lots of cash and a need for speed that will leave many a male motormouth behind them in the desert dust.
In a region of the world where woman often take the back seat – with Saudi Arabia only allowing females to drive this month – the club is a real trailblazer.
The motto of this elite group is: “Life is too short to drive boring cars.”
One of the members, Alex Hirschi, who driving under the alias Supercar Blondie, is also a member of Arabian Gazelles, explained to Forbes who was allowed to join.
Alex said: “To join the club, one has to be a supercar aficionado, and not merely a poser.
“She has to drive and own a supercar such as Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Mercedes-AMG GT Coupé, McLaren, Aston Martin, Maserati, Bugatti.
“I also included luxury SUVs Bentayga and the G-Wagon.”
Founder Hanan Mazouzi added: “We are supercar enthusiasts and bonafide drivers who share the same passion and rush behind the wheel as men do.
“We refuse to sit pretty on passenger seats or cheerlead from the pits.”
And several members say many people still expect them to be wives or girlfriends when they pull up in their supercars.
Jalyn Jarvi said: “You pull up and they expect you to be somebody’s girlfriend or wife.
“Everybody’s staring at you and it’s a little bit uncomfortable.”
Founder of the Arabian Gazelles, Hanan Mazouzi Sobati, buys cars with her husband and her love of powerful motors started when she was just a child and playing with her brother’s toy cars.
She has a Rolls Royce Drophead Phantom and Morgan Aero Supersport in her car collection and started a track day with her two neighbours in 2016.
She said: “Their husbands were all scared of me, because I was the one corrupting their wives.”
The Gazelles have taken part in events run by top-end car manufacturers.
In February, McLaren organised an exclusive and first ever female-only track experience.
Just a few week ago they were at Dubai Autodrome driving Rolls-Royce’s latest high-performance Black Badge models.
